Establish Your Retirement Online Security and Contact Administrators

As an employer, the first step you should take to prepare for using Retirement Online is to establish your organization’s security and contact administrators. You should have already received authorization forms to establish these administrator roles. We need these forms completed and returned to set up their Retirement Online employer accounts. If you have a question or have misplaced your forms, please contact the Retirement Online Employer Help Desk.

Transitioning to Retirement Online: Get Your Bronze Certification

In May 2018, you’ll begin using Retirement Online for reporting and member enrollment. Between now and then, you’ll need to complete a certification process to prepare for using Retirement Online and its new reporting formats. The first step in the certification process is to complete all Bronze level tasks by March 30, 2018. You can find the certification requirements on our website.
